Walk from Robe

The Great Walk 160: From Robe to the Goldfields and Beyond

To commemorate the 160th anniversary of the Great Walk from Robe, CCCAV will take a team of walkers on a journey from Robe to Ballarat, to the Parliament of Victoria. The walk will take place over 20 days in May 2017, along a route of over 400 kilometres. Walkers will go through townships of historical significance, see many heritage sites, meet decedents of Chinese goldminers; and gain a truly unique insight into this important chapter in Australian and Chinese history. It will be a truly unforgettable experience for those who take part.

A core team (of up to 20 people) will walk the entire route; and smaller groups and individuals will join them along the way. A support team will accompany the team for the duration of the walk. CCCAV is working with representatives from each town along the route to ensure the logistics of this huge undertaking are well managed; and just as importantly to engage local communities and foster their participation in the event.

重走淘金路

為了紀念偉大的羅布之行一百六十週年,維州澳華社區議會將組織大家徒步重走從羅布到墨爾本的淘金之路。此次行程將從羅布走至巴拉瑞特,終點在維多利亞州議會大廈。本次徒步將于2017年5月開始,步行全程超过四百公里,步行者們沿途會經過一些留有歷史遺跡的小鎮,觀賞到很多文物古迹,拜訪淘金者後代。更有機會從一個獨特的視角深入觀察這段在澳大利亞以及中國歷史里的重要篇章。這次徒步之旅將會為所有參與者帶來一次難忘的體驗。

一個核心團隊(上限為20人)將走完這次活動的全程,其他小組和個人將於途中加入他們一同前行。與此同時,一個後援隊將全程陪同本次徒步之旅。維州澳華社區議會會與沿線各鄉鎮的代表合作,以確保這個艱鉅的任務得到完善的後勤支持,除此之外我們還將強與當地社區的交流與互動,推動鼓勵他們參與到本次活動中來。
